Wisconsin High School To Build Second Airplane In STEM Program

SALEM, WIS. – Students in the Central High School STEM program in Salem, Wis., are about ready to start building their second airplane. Students worked very hard to build their first airplane, and just as hard to learn about aviation and to move forward to earn their pilot certificates while earning school credit.

Students completed their first aircraft – a “Falcon I” – exactly one year, one month, and one day after starting the project, and started work on their second aircraft in February 2016.

The class is featured on the Van’s Air Force website: http://www.vansairforce.com/community/showthread.php?t=133542 and on the U.S. Sport Aircraft website: https://www.facebook.com/USSportAircraft/

Persons interested in financially supporting the project can mail a check to: Aviation Club, c/o Central High School, 24617 75th Street, Salem WI 53168.

If you have any questions about the program, contact the club mentor, Jim Senft at senftj@westosha.k12.wi.us or call 262-758-2189.
